Health Psychology

The aim of the research groups is to:

  • Conduct multidisciplinary research on psychological, social and behaviour aspects of diseases and illnesses, as well as their consequences - and how to prevent and promote poorer and better health, respectively.
  • Construct professional competence based on empirical evidence and practise based research which may assist health policy makers in making informed decisions about national implementations of interventions and educational measures.
  • Establish a longitudinal health psychological project which, among other things, applications for PhD students may be attached to.
